I recently got a new system (From @TennesseeTony, thanks!) with a Xeon e5-2683-v3 in a MSI X99S-SLI-PLUS board. It's getting warmer now, and the new system resides in the basement, so I decided to put both my main video cards in it, a 750ti and a 1060 3GB. The problem is, watch-ing nvidia-smi in Linux, the video cards keep dropping to near 50% usage, though sometimes they're at 100%. And the watt use is much lower than it had been. How can I keep multiple (I'm thinking of at least one more) video cards at 100% usage in one system? Or, what's causing the dropoff in performance?
